Katie Holmes seeks support from friend Sandra Bullock after divorce
Actress Katie Holmes has reached out to friend Sandra Bullock for advice in dealing with her divorce from Tom Cruise
The 33-year-old filed for divorce last week, apparently blindsiding the "Mission: Impossible" star who was not aware of his wife's intentions.
"They met years ago through their mutual friend, Keanu Reeves, and Sandra knows all too well about being in a bad marriage - she's been a real comfort to Katie," a source said. Bullock herself divorced two years back from husband Jesse James.
It is said that Cruise and Holmes are hoping to settle their divorce out of court, apparently calling a "temporary truce" when it comes to legal proceedings. A source said that Cruise, "doesn't want his family dragged through the mud.
They love their daughter." However, Holmes is "dead-set" on retaining full custody of daughter Suri, with an insider saying, "Katie is not going to compromise on certain issues, all regarding Suri."
